out across north america? simply put, under barack obama and hillary clinton, the u.s. has been unwilling to lead. and this has left a huge vacuum on the world stage. in a recent assessment of secretary clinton's tenure. michael owe o'hanlon of the brookings institute wrote even an admirers such as myself must admit few big problems were soflted on her watch. few big vic trises achieved. secretary clinton's work at the state department should be judged on whether she has left america's foreign policy in stronger or weaker position. most think the future lies with china than the u.s. it's not all mrs. clinton's fault. but the fact is we just don't have the influence we used to have around the world from syria to mali, we have led from behind, so in effect the former secretary of state has helped manage our decline in what looks increasingly like a post american world. and that's the memo. now on to the top story. another view on this, joining us now from new york, fox news contributor julie ragenski and former advisor to frank lautenberg and president rosenberg a center left thin

about drones is not that u.s. forces can kill people from the air using targeted so-called precision-guided missiles. u.s. forces have been killing people from the air for as long as we have had the capacity to put armed things in the air. what is novel about what our government is doing now in our day is not necessarily the technology. yes, we are using remote piloted aircraft versus traditionally piloted aircraft to launch these same missiles. but the type of aircraft, that is, the delivery system for the hellfire missile is not the new moral strategic legal thing that we are finding ourselves newly responsible for grappling with as citizens. it is not the technology by which u.s. forces are killing people which is knew in an important way. it's not the technology that's new. it is the circumstances. it is the circumstances of killing people away from where a war is being fought. if the u.s. was using a mix of helicopters and drones to fire hellfire missiles at insurgents who were fighting with u.s. troops in afghanistan right now, nobody would have a different ethical concern or a

. jennifer, what happened? >> well, with little fanfare, shep, u.s. and nate officials in afghanistan removed from their web site the month-to-month figure saying attacks by the taliban were down by 7% last year. there seemed to be a mistake. a mistake that led to administration officials making statements like this. >> violence levels have been trending downward in the last two years after five years of steady increases beginning in 2006. >> the problem is the attacks weren't trending downward. they were exactly the same as in 2011. an embarrassing admission by the pentagon that the the narrative about how the president's strategy in afghanistan was bearing fruit may have been misleading, shep. >> shepard: they must be making some case at the pentagon in their own defense. >> well, in essence, they blame the afghans. the afghan commanders supposedly forgot to submit their field reports about the attacks so the pentagon data was misleading. >> this is a regrettable error in our database systems that was discovered during a routine quality check. we are making the appropriate ajustments. in sp
